I concur with other reviewers on this tea: pretty golden color in the brew, soft/sweet green base, and not-quite-natural but not-perfumey jasmine and lichee smells/tastes. There are actual jasmine flowers in this, so I’m not convinced this has all-artificial jasmine taste, but perhaps it’s boosted artificially? Anyway, this jasmine lover is enjoying it, esp. with the lichee overtones. (We recently got a Steepery tea drink shop on State St. in Madison and I have been dropping in Tuesday nights before choir rehearsal. Once I tried the lichee jelly I dropped the tapioca boba like a hot potato. Why didn’t I ever know what lichee tasted like before? YUM…)

I also concur with the package: “A delightful afternoon tea, and sure to please tea party guests.” Not that I ever have tea parties (especially not in the afternoon), but this tea has that drinkability that you look for in something you’re going to sip all afternoon or serve to guests. As with all green teas, make sure you watch water temperature and steeping time carefully, or this could get bitter (and I don’t think it’d be very drinkable like that). But overall this is a really nice tea! Glad I bought some.

Hi, I’m a librarian, SCA member, and tea lover from Madison, WI. I’ve been drinking tea all my life, but have recently become more of a fanatic about it. Single, straight, and looking. Would love to take a date to one of the great tea places here in Madison!
